When using a personal vehicle for business mileage your company can reimburse you at HMRC approved mileage rates. This guide explains how Provestor makes this easy and how we keep track for you.
HMRC specify mileage rates for different vehicles when a personally owned vehicle is used for business purposes. Mileage rates must be used instead of claiming for fuel, insurance, depreciation etc.
As part of your business records you must maintain, HMRC require you to keep a record of business mileage when claims are made. Provestor takes care of this for you and helps ensure that you are reimbursed for all your business travel.
The mileage log is accessed by clicking the mileage log button in the expenses screen. To make a new entry in the mileage log, click the new button then fill out the form:
